OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
Contestants will compete against each other and the clock. The object is to eat 6 Dreamland Ribs in the least amount of time. The contestant that cleans 3 Rib bones of all attached meat first, wins the Dreamland Ultimate Fan Package.
No alcoholic beverages may be consumed during the competition.
Contestants must not touch any ribs until the starting signal.
Contestants must stop eating at the ending signal, to be announced prior to beginning the contest.
Contestants will be given 6 Dreamland rib bones with meat on. Winner(s) will be determined by the person who completely cleans the edible meat from the bones in the least amount of time. All trays will be pre-weighed and post-weighed in order to determine amount consumed.
Contestants must observe Picnic Style Rules, which means the Ribs will be eaten according to tradition and meat should be removed from the bone using teeth, tongue, lips and mouth and cannot be taken off the bone in any other fashion, (ie knives, forks or fingers). Should an Eater be observed violating Picnic Style Rules he/she will be deemed in performance of a “picnic profanity” and will be disqualified. The use of utensils is not allowed.
Accidental and/or incidental separation is allowed.
Contestants who suffer a reversal of fortune and/or urges contrary to swallowing will be disqualified. Eaters must hold down the meat for a period of two minutes after the contest.
The "Chipmunking Rule" will be in effect, which means that any meat placed in the contestant's mouth but be swallowed before their Ribs will be considered "cleaned." Each contestant will continue to eat until the meat is cleaned from their ribs or the ending signal sounds.
In the event of a tie, the will be determined by a two-minute "RIB-OFF."
